This little project has been in the works for quite sometime! The idea started forming after seeing a toilet paper wreath on Pintrest. I have to tell you that I obsessed over that wreath for weeks! Finally my toilet paper roll stockpile got big enough for me to try out making one. I cut the rolls into 4ths and then cut some apart to make swirls.
They were then glued together using Liquid Glass from CTMH (other people have used a hot glue gun, but after my Halloween project not sticking together so well I decided against hot glue...) and a clothes pin. The clothes pin kept things together until it was completely dry. Then I painted everything white ~ but I didn't try too hard to be perfect about it because I wanted a bit of a rustic look. Side note: The large flower shaped snowflake under the image is also made from toilet paper rolls. When it was all together it was still a bit flimsy so I added more adhesive to a few more spots to stabilize the wreath. I also went around the edges and added more Liquid Glass and glitter while it was still wet. Then my Silhouette got to work cutting out loads of fabulous snowflakes and the sentiment, while I colored and cut out this cutie from Saturated Canary. The snowflakes were all inked in purples, blues, and pinks and glammed up with Stickles. A few pieces of bling and tada! A happy sparkly wonderful wreath to welcome the Winter season! :)
